what is this retrogression? im sorry for my ignorance but i dont know?:doh:

this is what my lawyer sent me

Retrogression

Congress has set a statutory limit on the number of permanent residency or immigrant visas ("green cards") available in each fiscal year. Generally speaking, there are approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas available each fiscal year. Additionally, Congress has limited the number of immigrant visas which nationals born in any one country can use. When the demand for immigrant visas is greater than the law has allotted, immigrant visa issuance becomes backlogged.

When a category is "backlogged," the foreign employee is, in effect, placed in line based on his priority date. He will not be able to pursue the last step of permanent residency until an immigrant visa is available to him based on his place in line.

Basically they are running out of visas the demand is with some countries being greater than other countries
